MAE 2100: Thermodynamics
Credits: 3
Includes the formulation of the first and second laws of thermodynamics; energy conservation; concepts of equilibrium, temperature, energy, and entropy; equations of state; processes involving energy transfer as work and heat; reversibility and irreversibility; closed and open systems; and cyclic processes. Prerequisite: APMA 1110.
MAE 3120: Thermal Systems Analysis
Credits: 3
Analysis of thermodynamic cycles and energy conversion systems. Topics include multi-component system analysis, real fluids, chemical equilibrium, and renewable energy systems. Applications include power generation, internal combustion engines, refrigeration/heat pump systems, energy audits, fuel cells, bio-derived fuels, and solar, wind, and water energy systems. Prerequisite: MAE 2100.
MAE 4513: Aerospace Engineering Special Projects
Credits: 2
Applied research in areas pertinent to aerospace engineering; conducted in close consultation with a departmental faculty advisor. Includes the design and construction of experiments, analysis, or the investigation of physical phenomena. The research may be related to ongoing faculty research and may be the topic of the senior thesis, but its scope must be significantly beyond that required for the thesis. Prerequisite Fourth yr. standing.
